Yes, that's very important!

I think the only interesting thing (technical) about Gideon is its expandable 
framework. And hasn't been changed since Gideon 0.1, or?
So Ralf, if you want to 'preview' the features, you'll fight onto lost ground 
:-). There's some stuff: Sandy's PHP Code Completion and something like a 
Package Manager and a joke-cppcodecompletion ;-), but ...

So I think as Sandy said, pronounce in the announcement that this is a 
technical preview of the next generation KDevelop - "The 
Multi-Language-Integrated-Development-Environment" :-).

BTW.: Gideon 0.1 was announced that way, why announce it the second time?
